“Reality show offs”. Thats what i would like to call the indian version.
One difference here its the program directors and the judges thatshow off.
They say they are nourishing the talent… but do they actually nourish or do they actually  kill the talent?? its a matter of concern.

Do a singer needs to be dancer also? I dont know why the participants needs to dance in a program to find the strar singer? (Idea star singer, asianet; and same is the case with many other channels).

The worst part of the reality show offs is the immatuarity of judges.
let me narrate a story that i have read in childhood.

” A king once wanted to know his future. He called upon an astrologer to predict the future. The astrologer predicted “You will die only after all your friends and relaticves die”. The King was furious on hearing these words and he sentenced him to death. he called upon another astrologer. the new astrologor predicted “You are previledged to serve all your friends and relatives throughout your life time”. The King was glad on hearing these words and gave lots of gifts to the astrologer.”

Here both the astorologers said the same thing . but the second one was mature enough to put it in good words.
Most of the reality show off judges are now immature like the first astrologer who was sentenced to death. The matuarity of the judges is an important factor in a reality show. unfortunatly we have only judges who know to make sensational controversial but no mature comments

Imagine a young singer with some good talent but less experience participating in a program like this. The immature comments of the judjes can harm the young ones more than anything. Even the Grown ups mostly find it hard to take criticisms in public. The example of shinjini is just an example. The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has taken the right step by recommending that children below 16 years of age be barred from participating in reality TV shows.

In the case of ISS(idea star singer,asianet)the contestants have to sign an exclusivity rights contract with Asianet which does not allow them to sing in movies, attend stage shows or other television channel programs for a period of 18 months. It was clear from the entire program that it was completely a prescripted drama.The eliminations and winners are pre-planned and the contestants are notified of that. Will this not kill the real talent ratyher than helping it.

The next issue i would like to point out is about “Cheating the public through SMS” .
Asianet said SMS votes play a major role in eliminating candidates. But the episodes of the next round were mostly shot before even the sms were sent. it was very clear that this was just to cheat people and get money . Each sms carried 3 rs/- of which most of the money goes to idea, the sponsers of the event. I suggest the govt to make a prob into this puiblic cheating by the channels.

do we need this kind of reality shows.?  i dont think any one with common sense would suggest we eed this kind of things to ruin our new generation. but again common sense is not so common.

One question to ask…
This time to high court of kerala!!!!

i would like to know the details of banning of “Bandh” in kerala.
years back the honorable high court of kerala banned “Bandh” in kerala.
I remember “Bandh” was banned mainly  because it affected the peaceful daily life of  people. The Supreme Court in a verdict had upheld  Kerala high court ruling declaring “Bandh”s illegal and made it applicable to the entire country.
Any way after that kerala didn’t had any more “Bandh” to add to history. But soon we saw another way kind of thing named “HARTHAL” becoming popular.
The way “HARTHAL” is affecting people seems to be worse than how “Bandh” was doing the harm.
Now My Big question is “Did the  High Court banned the Word “Bandh” or did The High Court Meant banning something that was affecting people’s life and was named “Bandh” during that time?”.

Now if court just meant to ban the usage of word “Bandh” ; what makes the court thinks so.
“Bandh” is neither an indecent word nor a racist remark. neither does the usage of that word harm any class of people in the country.It is actually the act of “Bandh” that hurts the most.

If the court meant to ban the act of “Bandh” the our dirty politicians has violated the ban made by the court by doing the same in another name (“HARTHAL”). Now its 10 years since the court banned the “Bandh” and still The same thing is happening every alternate days disguised in the name of “HARTHAL”. Why the court is blinding itself to the politicians who calls for the “Bandh” disguised in the name of “HARTHAL”. why the court is not taking action against violating the court rule ???

This makes the public feel untrustworthy about the court rules. If court can make helmets compulsory and fine people why not punish the bloody politicians who destroy billions of revenue in the name of “HARTHAL”.

Are we INDIANS ever going to see an India without these unholy “Bandh”s and “HARTHAL”s???

to tell the truth i’m ashamed to live in the land of “Bandh” and “HARTHAL”.

just have a look at the image below

crazy  windows group

crazy windows group

The firefox is grouped along with the windows explorer windows.. I couldnt find out why this is happening.     The system admins at my office said they are seeing it for the first time.  i couldnt find an answer about it in google. if anyone knows why it is happening.. please share your knowledge

Is it yet another bug in windows?? god knows.

I downloaded the google chrome today morning.   My initial views of the Google Chrome are

Google Chrome UI looks really good. The google have made yet another great user interface. Its really different from its counterparts and gives a clean and simple look and feel ..

Its rendering is really good.  it is a real threat to IE

The tabs of Chrome is really looking good. unlike the downward tabs of firefox iot has a better looking upward tabs

The omnibox feature is looking great at the moment.  the auto completeion is really good and i guess \this will get improved in the days to come

The Home page that is the most useful feature  for most of the users (and for some people might be most annoying  feature).  the thumbnail give us an idea of the history in a better way than the existing methods of IE and Firefox. it shows the recent visits, recent searches recently closed tabs and bookmarks. thwe history section is completely redifend in chrome

The google Chrome can fetch a website from the google cache if the actual webpage is not working.

incognito mode is yet to be tested.

Here is the link to download Chrome if you havnt done it Yet http://www.google.com/chrome/

This is all i could get in an hour since i downloaded the chrome.

I had read the comic about google chrome last day . it was really good..

The way the google marketed the new product was simply unbelivable. in just 2 days it created much news than firefox 3 could do in a month.
